We are working on multiple fronts to prevent deadly lung disease from devastating the lives of so many people like you and the ones you love: Research
Whether finding ways to stop the growth of lung cancer cells or investigating how genetics may affect asthma, the American Lung Association supports scientists who are making breakthroughs in identifying the causes of lung disease. Vaccines
The American Lung Association supports and encourages everyone to get a yearly flu vaccine. For the past four years, our innovative nationwide Flu Clinic Locator has helped anyone who wants a flu shot to find one where they live or work. Clean Air
Breathing air free of pollutants and carcinogens is a crucial component of our fight to prevent lung disease. The American Lung Association is working with local governments across the U.S. to establish and maintain the highest standards to keep our air safe to breathe. Smokefree Kids
Every day, 4,000 children under 18 years old start smoking, raising their risk of developing lung cancer, emphysema and other deadly lung diseases later in life. The American Lung Association has developed effective smoking prevention and cessation programs for children and teens.
